Abstract

We report on a girl with Robinow syndrome and pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (VSD). Seven cases of Robinow syndrome with congenital heart defect (CHD) have now been described, 5 of whom had stenosis or atresia of the pulmonic valve. This suggests that CHD, especially right ventricular outlow obstruction, may be a component manifestation of this syndrome in some cases. Since early recognition of this type of heart lesion can minimize morbidity by facilitating optimal surgical therapy, thorough cardiac evaluation of all patients with Robinow syndrome seems warranted.
